furniture scored!

The chair you see above is sold out worldwide for the next two years.  Currently a grad student who scored my furniture via Craigslist, I can’t begin to fathom how furniture could be exclusive (or even sold out).  Luckily, Danji was able to nab these Magis Pipe chairs and stools designed by Jasper Morrison and become the only restaurant in New York to have them for the next two years.  The team was able to intercept a chair before it was sent to a factory in LA from Italy to check it out and they really really like it.

Magis describes itself as a “brand that has given a novel twist to domestic design, building its identity on incorporating leading edge technology into mass production.”  This Italian company was founded by Eugenio Perazza in 1976, and famous furniture designer Jasper Morrison created this stacking “Pipe Chair” in 2009 by side of an English chair from the 17th century.  Details about the chair are as follows:

Stacking chair.
Also available with arms.
Year of production: 2009.
Material: frame in polished aluminium tube or painted in polyester powder.
Seat and back in punched aluminium plate polished or painted in polyester powder, or in beech plywood.

The New York Times recently came out with their fall preview:

DANJI Small plates of Korean inspiration will be the focus of chef and owner Hooni Kim’s cooking. The restaurant’s name refers to the clay jars used to contain kimchee, and they have inspired the décor: 346 West 52nd Street. October.
